Food, Fun, and the Races

I had another awesome opportunity to do a little traveling for a job shadow this week!

Thursday evening I hopped in the car heading for Lousiville, Kentucky!  I made a quick stop in Bowling Green for the Corvette Museum, wow!  Some really awesome cars, it’s a must if you are into that sort of thing.

I hit Louisville right at 5:30, but for some reason there was NO traffic and I was able to drive straight into my downtown hotel.  Later I found out there was a time change and it was actually 6:30, which explains the lack of traffic.  After checking in to my hotel I asked for a dinner recommendation and it was a good one.  I walked a few blocks to BBC (Bluegrass Brewing Company).  I ordered the bluegrass burger… I mean Kentucky IS the bluegrass state!  It was fantastic.  Grass fed beef with pimento cheese, friend green tomatoes, fried onions, and a big piece of ham.  DELICIOUS! After dinner it was off to bed, I’m always shadowing those morning shows!

2AM alarm clock came just as early as it always does!  I was off to the new station WLKY in Louisville, Kentucky.  To make it even sweeter, today I job shadowed an OU alum, Matt Milosevich! We had a blast talking about OU and the TV biz.  Learned a lot about making my ever so important resume tape!

After my 4-9am shift it was time to explore some more!  I had brunch at Toast on Market… the BEST breakfast I have ever ate out.

So amazing.  Then I went and walked by the Ohio River… and just to say I went, drove across the bridge to Indiana and drove around for a few minutes.  Then it was getting time to head to Churchill Downs.  The home of the Kentucky Derby.  First I toured the museum to get the full background.  Then it was time for the races to start.  So much history and so many fun things to do.  I can’t imagine how crazy that place is during the Derby!  So glad I got a taste of what it’s like!
